Riverwest Radio Launches


You can now listen to “Cinema Fireside” (featuring Xav Leplae, Gabe Van Handel and Mark Borchardt) over the air. From today’s Journal Sentinel:

With a coveted FCC radio license in their hip pocket, a band of artists, activists and audiophiles operating out of a Riverwest storefront is taking to the airwaves New Year’s Day.

Riverwest Radio is among thousands of tiny, community-based outfits that collectively overcame years of debate in Congress and opposition from the likes of National Public Radio to snag a spot on the over-the-air dial. The station will occupy 104.1 FM, with call letters WXRW-LP.

What is Cinema Fireside?

Through the compelling conduits of extemporaneous thought and conversation, these good gentlemen explore the vast and intriguing terrain of filmdom from contemporary offerings to historic gold.

Ultimately,“Cinema Fireside” provides for a robust symposium of filmic musings, erudite conjuring and all-around collective soul-searching. One never reaches for the dial – because they can’t. Yet. Tune in, be in, and live grandly and respectably.

Congrats to Mark and Xav.
